WM3431HW all in one washer/dryer does not power on

Ive had this washer/dryer for about 6 months and last week it just wont turn on anymore. for about a week prior to this the dryer seemed to not work as well and would take twice as long to dry. Now it wont turn on and if you unplug it for about 15 seconds and plug it back in it will chime but no lights come on and it still not working at all.

The filter is blocked. Disconnect your power source. Open the panel. Have a towel or wet vac handy and a screw driver. There is a silver ring circling the drainage hose with a small screw on top. Loosen the screw. Pinch the hose on top and let water drain to wet vac or towel. Completely remove the hose from it's housing. Reach your thumb and index finger inside that same hose and pull out the filter. It looks like a small plastic cup with holes in it. Clean it out, wash it. Use your fingers or dry vac hose and feel the bottom of the inside of the hose where the plastic cup came from. Remove any debri that excaped past the filter with fingers or suction with hose til you can feel with your fingers that the bottom of the inside of the hose is clear. return the cup back inside the hose. Put the silver ring over the lip of the hose then place the hose back on it's metal housing which is attached to the machine. Make sure the hole is secured around the entire metal (if not you will get leakage). Tighten the small screw, pull down at the hose making sure it will not come off with the pressure of the water. Clean up any leakage. Close panel and I promise you, your problem will be solved. Good luck, from Cheryl AlAlexander

Where can i find a free service manual for LG WM3431HW?


Unfortunately you won't find one.

LG only supply their servicing manuals to their repair centres and strictly enforce their copyright, so the manuals are not available to the public and when they do occasionally appear the material has been stolen.

Usually I'd recommend a generic repair manual such as the one by Haynes, but LG's direct drive system and a number of other unique technical features mean that the Haynes book isn't as useful as it could be. The WM3431HW is a large capacity and technically advanced washer dryer so it's certainly not as straightforward to service as a traditional front loading washer or dryer. Many LG spare parts can also be difficult to source outside of their own approved servicing organisation.

I respectfully suggest that you either get LG to fix your machine or post a question on this site describing the problem to see if we can assist you.

Splendide 2000 Vented won't work


If you are talking about you have power to the washer/dryer but the machine won't even turn on, won't spin, won't add water, won't turn on dryer, then your situation is like mine right now. Last week with the same situation, we remounted the security switch in the door lock where the little hooks goes into the washer and the machine worked for about a week. Now the same thing is happening and I am looking for a replacement switch.

I definitely need help in getting the washer out of its cabinet and get the cover off in order get to the switch from above.

Try checking the back, there is a plastic tub that is connected to the drying system and it can get clogged with lint etc. It will also cause the unit to give you longer drying times. It is a poor design. You can also pop off the lid to get a better look but make sure you unplug the unit.

The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.
